Who Needs Guidance?
|Authors||Sampson. J.P.,Jr, Palmer. M and Watts, A. G|
A key issue in guidance provision is how to make services flexible and responsive to client need. A model is presented which distinguishes between individuals with high, medium and low levels of readiness for career decisionmaking. It is suggested that those with high levels can be referred to self-help services; those with moderate readiness to brief staff-assisted services; and those with low readiness to individual case-managed services. The theoretical basis for the model, the use of diagnostic instruments within the model, its implications for career resource rooms and Internet websites, and its staffing implications, are discussed. Elements of the model are currently being applied in a careers service setting in Coventry. The main principles of this work are described, and the more general relevance to the model to current policy issues in the UK is examined.
